Don't get me wrong, I always enjoy the rep, but today made me curious, I got five reps for an upvote on an answer, and ten on the same day:

Can't remember this ever happened to me before. Tiny bug?

You got +5 from an upvote on the question, not the answer. You simply happened to receive an upvote on both the question and the answer today, hence +10 for the answer and +5 for the question.

  • Omg, it was! Shame on me. Think I need a vacation, or maybe mine was too long :) Commented Aug 23, 2018 at 15:45

I've checked your profile and yes, that is absolutely possible, you've got one upvote for your question (= 5 reputation points) and you've got another upvote for your own answer (= 10 reputation points). Obviously you seem to be new to the Stack Exchange system ... hope you don't mind the joke. :)

  • Haha, sure. I deserve it. I remembered answering the question, but remembered it as answering a question of someone else. Was pretty sure of it. Didn't even check. Commented Aug 24, 2018 at 6:45
